3 Poinsettias

It's mighty chilly out there!  We had a very frosty start to the day and in the shady parts of the street the frost hasn't completely gone.  Lucky for me that wheeling the dustbin down to the roadside was the only "out" I needed to do today!
My card for The Sketch File today features a trio of festive red poinsettias.  I was doing a bit of blog-hopping the other day and someone (I'm really sorry but I can't remember who's blog it was on) had added a lovely poinsettia and it reminded me that I'd not made any for cards this year - so I've rectified that with this card.

I've used a selection of red and gold card and paper, plus smooth white cardstock for the card blank and die cut square and rectangle.
The sentiment was printed onto white card and cut out with a die from a Sue Wilson set.  
The same die was used to cut the gold rectangle. 
The large white square was cut with one of the scalloped dies from the Tonic set
Large poinsettia bracts and leaves; Sue Wilson poinsettia set
Medium; Punch Bunch punch
Small; Britannia die (small poinsettia)
Stars and Snowflakes; various punches and dies
Narrow red stain ribbon
Red Stickles
Small yellow stamens
The sketch;
November 2016 LO; The Sketch File

So that's my lot for today, I hope you like the card and will be inspired to try out the LO for yourself!

Thanks for looking, please leave a message :)
